ATTENDANCE EXCEPTION PROCEDURES
Individual school boundaries have been established for all Unit 5 Schools based on the residence of the parent or guardian. The following procedure has been established to address the issues of attending a school other than the one assigned.
For K-8 students, exceptions will be granted based on the enrollment numbers at the requested and the assigned schools.
For High School (9-12) students, exceptions will be granted only for documented health issues. In order for a student attending high school on an attendance exception basis to participate in any Illinois High School Association (IHSA) sponsored activities, the student must be declared eligible by that organization.
Receiving an attendance exception is a privilege, not a right. It is an expectation that children have regular attendance at school and maintain appropriate behavior. Should either of these become an issue, attendance exceptions may be revoked and students may be returned to their home school.
